Hey guys! Been a while since I last posted. Life has been rather busy with the baby, so I've not sculpted much since the last sale. It will take a bit for me to get enough for another etsy sale... I'm guessing I'll have them more like once a month from now on, if I manage my time really well. I like to have close to 20 or so items for the sales, and I'm not really close to that at all yet ^^;

Anyway! To the real point of this journal! I'm having a facebook giveaway to celebrate 10K watchers! Which is kind of funny because I surpassed that long ago here, unbeknownst to me for a quite some time. Holy crap there are a lot of you watching me! Over 25,000 now! That's...somewhat scary and neat and humbling all at once O_o

I wanted all my watchers here to have a chance at the facebook giveaway, so just head on over to my page: www.facebook.com/pages/Dragons… for the details. I AM limiting it to facebook directly, just easier to keep track of all the entries that way. ( I promise I'll do a DA giveaway soon too) The official rules are posted here: www.facebook.com/notes/dragons…

Basically the gist of it is:
Make me something dragony, in any media you want to use. I know not everyone is especially artsy craftsy so you could write a poem or story etc.
Post the pic (or link to anything written) on my timeline or in the comments of the giveaway post.
You get ONE entry per person.
Everyone gets a chance at the custom dice dragon just for entering, but whoever's I pick as my personal favorite will win the black and gold dice dragon I've already got made. 
This runs til March 22, so you have LOTS of time to come up with something really awesome! 

I hope you all have fun with it! :D

Explanation [Edit]

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 7, 2012, 3:27 AM
Banner made by AimaiLeafy
Request Closed Stamp by SquirtleStampsArt Trades Closed by SquirtleStampsCommissions Closed by SquirtleStamps

I guess I owe you guys an explanation.
I'm talking about the 'FAITH: If there was a possibility for FAITH to get printed as a fancomic [with permission of Nintendo ONLY, of course]...'-Poll. I'm trying my best to explain it with my worse English. I won't be mad if you won't understand me completely. I'm sorry for this.

It's true I'm thinking of making a fancomic out of FAITH and a friend of me and I are working on the "copyright" already. Many people asked me how I'll be able to come to the "copyright". Of course, it is not possible to get the whole and true "copyright", but that isn't necessary. All I need is an agreement, better said, an official permission of Nintendo to print the comic officially.

How does that work and how can this become possible?
:bulletred: I'm able to get the permission when I agree to put advertisment for different Nintendo-products (video-games, toys article, official Mangas...) into the FAITH-print version. FAITH itself is some advertisment for Nintendo as well (= Pokémon), but that won't be enough. Also the "true copyright" must be posted into the fancomic version. That's naturally(!).
:bulletred: I'd be not allowed to make profit (by the way, I don't want that anyway) out of the printing sale. If I did it would 'hurt' the true "copyright" and would be illegal anyway. But I'm allowed to ask for the print-and porto-prizes, that means the money I need for the printing and the sending per mail to the new owner would be the prize for the finished printed comic customer.
:bulletred: In whole this means I only would get the "right" (NOT the copyright!) to print my comic as available-to-buy-comic when I agree on the options abough, not less, not more. It's impossible to become an owner of the Nintendo-rights, please, don't missunderstand or confuse this. That's a big difference.
:bulletred: With these points I want to make everything legal when giving you the option to get FAITH as an original comic and not only a digital version you're not able to hold in your hands. I'm trying to find a possibility to share this with you because so many had fun in reading FAITH - it would be so sad if there was no internet in any way anymore you weren't able to read the comic again - and this imagination (as awkward as it sounds...) makes me really sad. I was so happy so many people could enjoy this story, it would break my heart if it was away anywhen because of some irrelevant reasons.
:new::bulletred: [EDIT] That doesn't mean FAITH would be able to be bought in a shop but private by myself. Please, don't missunderstand this. FAITH won't be an official Pokémon-Manga anywhen in any time. Be careful. Sorry. I was afraid you would understand this wrong. And of course, it happened. Gnah.[/EDIT] :new:

This action shall be only a chance for you to get FAITH as a real comic and not a story-in-the-internet-only.

I didn't and still don't want to make you wrong hope that's why I never said a word. I wanted (and still try) to finish the Special first because it shall be included in that fancomic-version as well.
I DON'T want to make money with FAITH! Not because of it's illegal only but because of it is a fancomic, not perfect, and not as good as an actual Manga. It's for fun only. I had fun in making it and you had fun in reading it. If I wanted to sell I wouldn't have chosen some copyrighted characters. The last thing I want to be is a criminal.

You can think I'm crazy, that's okay.
But please don't think I'm a criminal.
I only wanted to look for a solution, a chance.
And I'm sorry I'm not able to explain it right what I want to say. I suck in English and I know it. - And when we're talking about sucking English: That version of FAITH which is available at the moment on Animexx and deviantART WON'T become the version of the official fancomic I'm planning. If this project would become possible...
:bulletgreen: ... I'd make the Prologue and Chapter 1 new completely. More detailed, more perfect as I'm able to now. It looks terrible, newby and I know that myself. All I need is time to redraw it.
:bulletgreen: ... I'd ask MoD366 and Da-Wabbit to correct my stupid English from the Prologue until Chapter 4. IF I'd be allowed to print it, it should be as original as possible. That's my own wish and I guess you would agree.
:bulletgreen: ... (of course!) I'd try to make it as cheap as I could (prize meant, not the quality! XD).

Okay - I hope I said everything. If you have anymore questions about this project, please, let me know, but...
... please, have in mind it isn't sure if I'm able and allowed to print it legal. We're still working on the rights for it.
... please, don't be disappointed if it won't work.
... please, be honest when you tell me you're interested but when it becomes seriously you suddenly tell me you didn't want to have it anymore.
Thanks.

I really hope, you can understand what I wrote there. I suck in explanations even in my own mother language. :iconotlplz:

AND I'M SAYING IT AGAIN:
ALL CHARACTERS OUT OF "FAITH" BELONG TO (c) POKÉMON NINTENDO! THEY'RE ONLY BORROWED AND NOT MINE. "FAITH" IS A FANCOMIC ONLY.


Thank you.

Yours MiyaToriaka
